"Some people have said we ought to close Guantanamo. My view is we ought to double Guantanamo."

Voicing support for Guantanamo's controversial (and legally dubious) "enemy combatant" program is a sure way to win over the hearts of the GOP base. That's not the problem Romney's strange locution at the South Carolina Republican Debate, "Double Guantanamo," sounds like an order at a Cuban coffee bar, not a policy proposal, and it leaves listeners in the dark as to what the Governor actually favors. A bigger prison? More prisoners? Extra-foam waterboarding?
